Pinewood welcomes new Athletic Director

  • Tuesday, May 21, 2013

Provided -- Andy Morgan has been hired as the new Athletic Director for Pinewood Prep. --

Pinewood Preparatory School, on Monday, announced Andy Morgan as its new Athletic Director.
Morgan and his family will be moving to Summerville from Virginia in July when he will take the reins of Pinewood’s athletic department. Morgan replaces Nancy Beatty who has accepted a new position as Athletic Director at Providence Day School in Charlotte.
Morgan comes to Pinewood from Ware Academy, where he has spent the past nine years as their athletic director and a coach, as well as a physical education and health teacher.  Prior to his near decade at Ware, Morgan was a teacher, coach, and an athletic director at Highland School.  He is a native of Virginia and a graduate of High Point University in North Carolina.
While at Ware Academy, Morgan has led a substantial expansion of their athletic program, as well as chaired committees to raise funds and renovate their facilities. He has organized tournaments for teams and chairs their annual golf tournament every year.  He has also been instrumental in developing student leadership and school sponsorship programs while recruiting, hiring, and supervising their coaching staff.
 As a coach at Ware Academy, Morgan has had great championship success in middle school girls’ soccer, basketball, and lacrosse.  At Highland, he coached high school basketball and was twice named conference coach of the year.
One of his current board members said, “Andy has the ability to understand each child and reach them. Kids at Ware absolutely revere him.  Losing him will negatively affect our enrollment.”
His current Head of School said, “Andy is very good about listening to parents.  His teaching colleagues know how much he cares.  Andy has a keen sense of how to balance what is good for the individual, the school, and the athletic program.”
At Pinewood, Morgan will be charged with leading Pinewood’s commitment to excellence in athletics for all student-athletes in all sports. Major priorities in his first year will include a focus on strengthening the school’s junior varsity and middle school programs and helping to create additional opportunities for its lower school students.  He will also teach in the physical education department.
Accompanying Morgan on his move to Summerville will be his wife, Nicolle, and their children, Briland (age 6) and Olive (age 3).
